How to measure for roller blinds?

We advise using a metal tape measure for accuracy. Measurements should be in cm or mm. Please double-check your measurements.



Note there is a gap of about 1.5cm from the edge of the fabric to the ends of the roller mechanism. If in any doubt about what to do, please call us


Three scenarios for measuring blinds are:

1. Inside Recess
Make sure that the recess is at least 6cm deep. Otherwise the blind will protrude beyond the recess.

 

1. You need to measure width A-B.
We need this measurement in full; do not reduce it.There will be a gap of about 1.5cm between the fabric and the recess 
wall which will allow some light through, even with a blackout lining.


2. Measure drop C-D

3. Note which side you would like the chain – right or left.

2. Outside Recess

Decide on the amount of fabric to overlap the top and sides of the window recess. We recommend at least 5cm for the top and 6.5cm for the sides to minimise light leakage when using a blackout lining.
 

1. Measure the width A-B
2. Measure the drop C-D
3. Note which side you would like the chain – right or left



Outside edge of architrave

 

3. Fixed to Window Architrave (Frame)

First, decide whether you want your roller blind to hang on the outside or inside of the window architrave.
 

1. Measure the width A-B
2. Measure the drop C-D

3. Decide which side you would like the chain – right or left

How to measure for vertical blinds?

 

1)Choose Mount Type

 

 

Inside Mount

 

Window treatments are most commonly installed on the inside of the window frame.

 

 

Outside Mount

 

Occassionally you will need to mount your window treatments outside the window frame. These treatments are mounted directly to the trim or above the windows.

 

2) Measure

 

 

Inside Mount

 

Measure the inside of the window frame in 3 places for width and height. Record the narrowest width and shortest height

 

 

 

Outside Mount

 

Measure the overall area to be covered. Add extra inches (approximately 3”) to the width and height of the window opening for optimum light control and privacy.
